The Tissot Powermatic 80 is a Swiss Made self-winding automatic movement with 23 jewels. It is found in various Tissot models and is based off of the ETA caliber C07.111 watch movement. This caliber’s claim to fame is the high 80 hours power reserve.

Plastic Parts

There is confusion about whether or not the Powermatic 80 movement uses plastic parts (similar to the Swatch Sistem51). First, it’s important to acknowledge that there is more than one Powermatic 80 caliber. For example, The Tissot Luxury line has the Powermatic 80.111 with 23 jewels and uses plastic parts. The COSC rated Powermatic 80.811 found in the Tissot Ballade does not.

Tissot with all metal and 80 hours of power reserve can justify the price difference but not plastic. OK this is just one review and I will see if there are other reviews with same facts presented… Read more »

You refer to Silizium with the term plastic, implying that it is lower qualtity. The Silizium Technology allows to adjust the wheel to the movement. It’s abrasive quality is higher than metal and it is antimagnetic. Over all it makes the watches preciser. These qualities are the reason, why Omega as an example could expand it’s garanty to 5 years. I’m proud to have my first Silizium-Movement in a Mido Chronometer. The blind rejection reminds me of a conservative view that prefers the old over the progress. Watch technology did and will always change.
